Abstract

In dental accident cases the incidence of root fractures in permanent teeth are just 0.5-7% of the cases. Root fractures in the middle third are more frequently involved than the apical third fracture. Since their management may require an  interdisciplinary/multidisciplinary approach to care, root fractures are clinically challenging. Thus, to ensure a good treatment plan and, therefore, the best possible prognosis, a clinician must strive for the right diagnosis of root fractures and have detailed knowledge of various therapeutic approaches. The present case highlights the use of the glass fiber post in the upper left lateral
incisor, which is endodontically treated, demonstrating a complicated horizontal root fracture in the middle third of the root, stabilizing the fractured root fragments and monitoring the patient for one year, showing a well preserved assembly of the root fragments and the post.

Keywords: Glass Fiber Post, Root Fracture, Horizontal Root Fracture.
